2018 Volkswagen T-Cross SUV To Be Revealed This Fall, Gets Bigger Boot

There are two things that Volkswagen wants us to know about its new T-Cross SUV: It will be revealed this fall after the Paris motor show, and it will have a bigger boot compared with its competitions.

The Volkswagen T-Cross will be the fourth model in VW’s SUV lineup. It will be positioned beneath the T-Roc, the Tiguan, and the Touareg. Then, it will be in direct competition with the Citroen C3 Aircross, the SEAT Arona, and the Nissan Juke.

After its debut later this autumn, VW confirmed that the T-Cross will go on sale across Europe in the spring of 2019.

This latest teaser showed that the T-Cross SUV will get a significantly better boot size, a total of 455 liters in capacity. Since the sliding rear bench will become standard across the model, folding the rear bench flat will take the total boot size to 1,281 liters of space. This is better than the Nissan Juke and the SEAT Arona. Without the rear bench folded, it also beats out the Citroen though the latter has better capacity once the rear seats have been dropped.

The overall shape of the car is squarer than the T-Roc and that should be enough for the model to stand out amid the very Volkswagen styling of its brothers in the brand’s SUV lineup. Essentially, the T-Cross is a Polo SUV without the design elements of the supermini. It would have a slightly bigger proportion than the Polo SUV and the T-Cross will even be taller compared with its in-house rival, the SEAT Arona.

Other things we noticed about the teaser is that the rear lights might be connected by a LED lighting strip that spans the width of the tailgate.

The lineup for the powertrains will be based on a new 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol that can produce a range between 75 horsepower and 115 horsepower. Five- and six-speed manual will be standard across the range but a dual-clutch automatic transmission will be available for higher-spec models.
